Magnificent 90 for Twickenham's Emma "Spuggie" Elsom in just 74 balls

Too many gaps in the field with only 9 fielders, Reigate Priory seal their win in just 20 overs

Sinead writes - On yet another sweltering Sunday Twickenham Ladies won the toss and elected to bat first on the fondly named Twickenham Sahara. With only nine players this seemed liked the sensible decision. Penny stepped into Karen’s shoes opening the batting with Sinead. They got off to a solid start, Penny playing straight and hitting boundaries, whilst Sinead played in her usual steady way at the other end. Unfortunately Penny was the first to succumb when the score was a respectable 35. Sinead was joined at the crease by Marieke who hit some swashbuckling shots before falling victim to what can only be described as the catch of the season so far (61 for 2). Spuggie was next to join Sinead at the crease, once they sorted out how the calling was going to work, they enjoyed a partnership of 54 runs before Sinead drilled a short ball to the close fielder.

Spuggie was joined by Hannah, a previous member who was helping us out, sadly Hannah didn’t last long which then brought Karen to the crease. Karen and Spuggie put on another 16 runs before Karen saw her bails fly into the air. At this stage the score was 140 with Spuggie on 47*. Leshia was the perfect laid back partner for Spuggie, who managed to reach an unbeaten score of 90 off 74 balls, in a partnership of 49 runs. Although Leshia may have only contributed 6 runs to the partnership her cover drive was easily the shot of the day! Twickenham finished with a very good 189 runs thanks to Spuggie’s score and the other partnerships along the way.

After a lovely tea provided by Janet (did someone say there was pizza?), Twickenham took to the field feeling confident with only nine players. The main aim was enjoyment. Unfortunately, Reigate forgot the format of the match and thought it was a Twenty 20, so when they got to the 20th over falling 6 runs short of the required total they were extremely happy to hear that they had another 20 overs to score the six runs!

All in all the fielding experience was tough in the heat, with none of our regular bowlers, a lack of fielders and an outfield which was ridiculously fast…having said that all the team remained positive until the end and it was enjoyable.

Thanks to Charlotte for driving up from Winchester to help us in the field. A massive thanks to Janet who had to deal with all the availability issues in the week – 9, 10, 11, 10 and 9 again! Thanks to Jude for driving up from Bath to play for us. Thanks to Melissa who returned after 18 months of no cricket – who definitely got her monies worth of fielding!
